BIRMINGHAM, Ala., May 3, 2022 – Eight USFL Game Day Officials were selected today to officiate games for the upcoming NFL 2022 season.

“The NFL selecting eight USFL officials today clearly demonstrates that our leagues share the same exacting standards of officiating,” said Mike Pereira, USFL Head of Officiating. “I’m very proud that these eight professionals will not only continue officiating for the USFL this spring, but that they will be working NFL games this fall.”
